EASY ORDER INFO HERE

The '62 Corvette was the final year of the C1, the model code being first introduced by Chevrolet in 1953 of its all-new fiberglass sport car. It was also the final year of the straight axle Corvette with a new 360-hp 327 small-block engine. With a low 3,070 lbs curb eight, a true sport car of which power steering, power brake and air conditioning were not available, it had a power-to-weight ratio of 8.6 lbs-per-horsepower, capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds and a quarter mile in 14.9 seconds. A 3-speed manual gearbox was standardized with a 4-speed manual being offered as optional.

It was the first time since 1955 that the Corvette was offered in solid colors instead of two-tone paint schemes. Side cove chrome and ribbed chrome rocker panels were also removed. President John F. Kennedy proclaimed "America's Sports Car Day" in honor of the 1962 Corvette. Sales of the car increased to a point that a second shift at the plant was added shortly after production had begun. A total of 14,531 units were built.
